at the business level and these numbers. what do i say? they're fishy. let me say one thing about jack welch that can't be said enough. there was no better ceo in america in the last 100 years than jack. he did it all. look at what he created, look at the value that was generated for people that own that stock. i'm biased. i sat on this board for six years but i can tell you right now i watched jack run a company. there was nobody better, nobody. he was all business. jack expected the numbers for what he said, not for what he wanted them to be. he was a realist. he's being a realist now and i think i am, too. these numbers don't square with what's going on in the economy. say what you want. >> jack had this, got this brand and never been hammered with criticism before. it's like, are you kidding me? you never heard of pcb, neutron jack, you've had -- he's had to put up with criticism. you do something the liberals their panties get in a bunch, but you can say, thisser' the sa they're the same ones that said bush lied, people died, which is a more heinous allegation to make. the bls, maybe th

. not everyone convinced, though. yesterday jack welch, the former chairman and ceo of ge, tweeted unbelievable job numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. he's obviously very influential man. when he tweets, people listen. is there any way that these kinds of numbers can be manipulated? >> he tweets, people listen, they retweet, they write about it and we certainly talked about it a lon on cnbc. the fact of the matter is the bureau of labor statistics has been calculating this number since 1948. it's a scientific survey. they poll 140,000 businesses. you definitely have a giant sample here. what some people are saying is a possibility is that the type of businesses sampled were ones that were skewed towards jobs added. those place where is they might have add more part-time workers. we also saw a giant jump in the number of people employed from the age group of 20 to 24. the biggest jump since 1964. some of these businesses that employed more young people being pulled? it's unlikely. it's really an issue of how much data you can actually get together in 3

fell to below 8%? also jack welch, the former ge guy. >> yep. >> he's tweeting this morning and saying, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. i mean -- so is it possible the labor department is lying or has changed these numbers in some way? >> look, these numbers are often revised. usually when you have a vibrant growing jobs market a revision of 86,000 doesn't make any difference at all. you have much more jobs being created. we don't have that right now. in terms of why the two numbers are different, there are two different surveys the government does. hou household survey where they ask people wheer they're employed and a company survey where they ask companies how many people are employed. those are two different numbers. so that's why you have the number of jobs created or lost and the jobless rate. that's the technical data gathering reason. as for -- look, you'll hear conservatives say either they don't trust these numbers or they're going to say, look, 114,000 is the important number to look at here. that's not good en
